  • Slowly drizzle the olive oil into the food processer while the hummus is mixing.
  • For the edamame, toss all the ingredients together and roast at 180°C for approximately 15 minutes or until golden.

For the flatbreads:

  • For the flatbreads, start by activating the yeast by mixing the water, yeast, and sugar together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the all-purpose flour, salt, baking powder, and cheese well.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the oil, yoghurt, egg, and squid ink (optional).
  • Mix well until all the ingredients are combined.
  • Finally, add in the yeast mixture and knead for approximately 5 minutes until well combined. Set aside for 1 hour at room temperature.
  • After an hour, split your flatbread dough into 10 equal pieces.
  • Working one ball of dough at a time, roll each one into approximately 20cm rounds.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side on a skillet over medium-high heat (no oil required).
  • Once cooked, top your flatbread with the hummus, edamame, and your favorite toppings.
